Congratulations to Trevor for be awarded the Research Excellence Award nominated by Dr. Yanhai Yin.
AMES, Iowa – Plant scientists at Iowa State University have shed new light on a genetic pathway that influences both plant growth and disease resistance, making it a promising target for breeding new crop varieties that can fight pathogens without sacrificing performance.
New research led by Jianming Yu, agronomy, identifies clear patterns in how plants react to different environments that could lead to new ways of predicting crop performance.
A new federally funded center of excellence led by ISU scientists will analyze various structures and mechanisms in the swine genome with the goal of allowing pork producers to predict with greater accuracy the traits in their herds.
First Person is a series of interviews with the first authors of a
selection of papers published in Disease Models & Mechanisms,
helping early-career researchers promote themselves alongside their
papers. Laura Schultz is first author on 'Epigenetic regulators Rbbp4
